children they would never see their son or daughter again fell to connecticut's governor, dannel malloy. the parents were brought to the town fire house on friday. yesterday an emotional malloy explained he didn't think it was right for families to have to wait a long time for the families of victims to be notified. >> there was a reluctance to tell parents and loved ones that the person that they were waiting for was not going to return and that that had gone on for a period of time, well after there was any expectancy that families would be reunited. so i made a decision that to have that go on any longer was wrong. >> malloy also called for the resurrection of a federal ban on assault rifles. he's not the only one calling for discussion about tougher gun laws in the wake of the newtown shootings. a just-released cbs news poll finds 57% of americans back stricter gun laws. that's the highest percentage in a decade. but less than half believe stricter laws would have prevented the shooting in newtown. tatiana anderson has more. >> reporter: 34 americans who survived or lost loved ones

. right now, we're told governor malloy is speaking inside the church. a little earlier today, ashleigh, i had the opportunity to speak with the deacon here. like so many people in this community, he knew some of the victims. some of the children that lost their lives. those were the same children that he used to stare at and see in the church every sunday. some of these children had their first communion here. he knew the school faculty, service faculty came to this church as well. during a very emotional moment, i want you to listen to part of the conversation that we had a little earlier about how all of this has affected him and the community. >> it's a very tight-knit community. it's a very large parish, a dynamic parish. everybody knows everybody here. and i don't know for sure but i'm sure that quite a few of the kids that we lost today are in this parish. i heard one of the victims, i'm not sure about it, but i heard that one of the victims, recently she -- i think it was birthday money, she got her birthday money, birthday gifts. she donated it to the parish to give for the hurric
, connecticut governor dan malloy will then introduce president obama for his remarks to this crowd. again, you're looking live at newtown, high school in newtown, connecticut and this school tragedy that they're dealing with after friday's shooting. shooting. newtown is a place that loves children above all. families move to newtown because we are a caring and loving community. we are also a place that has great pride in our schools, pride that propels the students in those schools with their outstanding teachers and administrators through high achievement and great personal worth. the horror that was visited upon our sandy hook school was not deserved. it is the angry and desperate act of a confused young man. there is no blame to be laid on us, but there is a great burden and a great challenge that we emerge whole, that these families devastated by unspeakable harm know and trust that we love them and will do everything we can to help them heal. i know that newtown will prevail that we will not fall to acts of violence. it is a defining moment for our town, but it does not define us. we are
, a democrat. also governor dannel malloy. the connecticut governor will also be on that face the nation. right now, talking about preventing these mass shootings. how can the government help. how can society help? good morning. >> good morning. caller: i would like to bring up the kids and the violent video games again. they sit there and play them daily. these are not the real consequences of taking out these guns. it just becomes part of the culture. what about that idea? host: mike, what would you do? would you ban them? make them available only to people of a certain age? caller: the age limit would be fine. maybe get that to go outside and play. host: so, the roles for parents in society? caller: yes, ma'am. that is a real legitimate thing to look at, i think. host: this is a written in -- host: steve is an independent caller in indianapolis. good morning, steve. caller: my comment is that in israel they have an-16's at the school's." -- m-16's and gun lockers in the schools'. and the solution should be, i believe, that we need to actually gunned down these terrorists. we have done a free
malloy. listen in. >> children, beautiful, beautiful children. who had simply come to school to learn. >> their day ended a different way than we could have imagined. as we stand here today we can't imagine what transpired there. evil visited this community today. it's too early to speak of recovery. but each parent, each sibling, each member of the family has to understand that connecticut, we're all in this together. we'll do whatever we can to overcome this event. we will get through it. but this is a terrible time for this community and for these families. our police personnel and others are doing the utmost to clear this situation as soon as possible. to return these children to their parents. or these loved ones to their fellow loved ones as quickly as possible. we'll work with all of the residents of this community. and connecticut to make sure that we do, in fact, get through this. i was mayor of stanford on 9/11. when our state lost many of its citizens and i lost a number of my fellow citizens and friends. i never thought that in a public career that i would have to face the
as well as the governor of connecticut malloy. now, president obama is very reminisce ept of the aurora, colorado, shooting and president obama spoke to the nation. he was middle in the campaign at that point. he suspended the events. spoke to the nation about how tragic it was, extended condolences to the people of colorado. i'm sure we'll hear similar comments of the president today. jay carney was asked earlier today about the fact that president obama has supported stiffer gun control legislation. he was asked if today was the day to renew the efforts. he said today is not the day to talk about policy but focus on the victims and all of the people who are suffering in connecticut so again president obama alerted about this tragedy at 10:30 this morning. he is monitoring the situation, getting updates throughout the day, offering his assistance to the state of connecticut as well as his sympathy and condolences. >> do we have any sense of how long the comments would be or if he would take questions? >> i'm sure he'll get some sh t shouted questions. i'm not sure the format specifica
the governor of connecticut, dan malloy, who has been meeting with the parents of those young children who were killed this morning in this very lensless tragedy. john, is the president about to come into the press briefing room? we'll leave that picture up so we know when the president enters. the white house is getting all of the latest information from the f.b.i. director. they're on top of this as well. >> that's right. this is a thing where, you know, the situation will light up and they'll start to get this information. in a fast-moving incident-- and this is my experience as a former assistant director of the f.b.i.-- sometimes inside information is overrated. which is you're getting information from n realtime from the scene, from the actual players on the ground and as we experience in trying to cover a story like that that information just because it's coming straight from the official sources and the actual witnesses also tends to change as it develops. i think what we'll see from the white house is a cautious statement that stays away from the facts and the numbers. and talks about
of connecticut, governor dannel malloy is meeting with families and not releasing the information that we need right now is because the governor wants to make sure that the families get that information first. and of course, as we've heard, we have sources that say that we have dozens killed. so they're probably dozens of families that the governor is meeting with right now. >> amanda, what can you tell us if anything about the relationship between the shooter and that school? was he a father of a student there? did he have some sort of connection to a staffer there? do we know anything about this 20-year-old shooter? >> all that we know right now is that there is a possible connection. we don't know if, like you said, that person had a child in the school. we actually even don't know how the person was able to get in to the school because here in connecticut what typically happens is a lot of the doors are locked. if they're maybe not the main entrance one to go in and go to the main office but a lot of the times the school's doorways around the building are locked so there's still questions
of those students and trying to return them, as governor malloy says of connecticut, back to their families so they can mourn and grieve their loss during this time. this community certainly just now getting out of the sadness and shock part and this grief heavily starting to set in. what we don't know about the shooter at this time is his exact identification. they're trying to process that information as well. there are numerous reports that they're trying to figure out the exact identification that they had on him at the time. but the main focus here for law enforcement and for first responders is dealing with those families who have lost those children. 18 who died at that school this morning, chris. two others that were transported to a local hospital and died later. and six adults and then also the shooter that died. so 27 people in all killed in this small area community here. and more details that we'll be learning about the heroics inside that school as this tragedy played out. we're hearing about how teachers that were in that section of the school where this happened, when they h
not be waiting for the governor to speak first because he's had this phone conversation with governor malloy. it is entirely possible that president obama comes out and makes a statement before the governor. i think that may be an indication that perhaps the timeline could be moved up, but beyond what it was before, but at this point, it is very fluid. it doesn't appear to be set and it is certainly not public as to when the president will make a statement, wolf. >> we'll stand by, have coverage obviously of that. and we have been told by the governors aid, one of the governor's aids that he is meeting with families, trying to console them. he's on the scene. at some point the governor, dannel malloy will be speaking as well. david arioso is on the scene. from your advantage point, david, tell us what you're seeing. >> i'm right outside the firehouse being used as a makeshift shelter for which family members, including parents and children, are holed up. you do see parents walking back and forth on a wooded stretch that leads up toward the school, oftentimes clutching their children, clutchi

of what he said. >> this afternoon i spoke with governor malloy, fbi director mueller. i offered governor malloy my condolences on behalf of the nation and made it clear he will have every single resource he needs to investigate this heinous crime, care for the victims, council their families. we have endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years, and each time i learn the news, i react not as a president, but as anybody else would, as a parent, and that was especially true today. i know that there is not a parent in america who doesn't feel the same overwhelming grief that i do. the majority of those who died today were children. beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. they had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. among the fallen were also teachers, men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams, so our hearts are broken today for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost. our hearts ar

that governor malloy is being updated both by state police and by federal officials, but an absolutely horrendous scene being described as some of these early reports are coming in from people who are in there, alex. >> chris, in terms of this, we've been talking a little bit about this reverse 911 call, which makes it sound like some students were not at school yet or the school was trying to take every measure possible to insure that parents were informed as to the situation, which seems to be a very quick response on their end in terms of getting the information out there and trying to calm understandably very concerned parents. >> this is something that technology has done that is tremendously helpful in situations like this, that they have this reverse 911 situation set up because, obviously, previously, and i remember this from having covered the columbine shooting very extensively, a lot of the information would come out at that point anecdotally that parents calling parents and even more chaos could enshoe because people don't know what's going on. at least the initial bit of i
